Cunard's Queen Victoria Review

Queen Victoria: Overview
Cunard Cruise Line Review

Queen Victoria is the 2nd to last to join the Cunard fleet in December 2007.  She is more like her sister Queen Elizabeth and a little different from Queen Mary 2, but like all three vessels she proudly upholds the famous heritage and traditions expected from the Cunard brand.  With magnificent woods, marbles, soft furnishings, plush carpets and rich fabrics this vessel simply exudes elegance.  Queen Victoria’s has many distractions and diversions to ensure you are thoroughly entertained and extremely relaxed as you cruise on this wonderful ship.

Queen Victoria: Passengers

There are three codes of attire while on the Queen Victoria and they are formal, informal, and casual. You will be informed when there are specific nights that will be for formal wear in the dining areas. Formal attire for women would be elegant dresses or gowns. Men should wear a tuxedo if they have one available. If they do not, then a dark colored suit and tie would work fine. Informal attire on board the vessel for men would be a sport coats and slacks or suit, and for ladies it would be a cocktail dress or pantsuit. Casual attire for women would also be a pantsuit or casual dress and for men can be a polo and slacks or a button up shirt. Shorts and baseball caps will not be permitted in the restaurants.
